even perfect people

even perfect people have
stories they hide
thoughts they do not share
and acknowledgements
they will not give
or receive
they may go into hiding
just like the rest of us
but peer through the widow
a little more often
their pain is no less real
and they cry no less
but it may be on the inside
for perfect people
are really good at keeping secrets
so, they say
as they rock on the crest of average
